BRIDGWATER United Ladies earned a convincing 3-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle at Fairfax Park on the weekend.

The fierce wind and rain made for tough conditions but Bridgwater were the better side throughout and two goals from Alice Griffiths and one from Chloe Gilroy sealed the three points.

Alice Griffiths earned herself player of the match with her performance which she said she was over the moon with.

"I am delighted with that, I don't usually get in on the goals so to get two is great."

"The weather didn't help today but we stuck at it and managed to win this competitive match," Griffiths said.

In the early stages of the match, and for most of the match in fact, all the action came through Bridgwater.

The first half saw chance after chance for the home side and just twelve minutes in they were ahead after Griffiths got on the end of a nice forward pass and she finished nicely to make it 1-0.

For the rest of the half chances came for Bridgwater, Jasmine Turner beat two defenders and got a shot off but it went narrowly wide.

There was a yellow card late in the half for Plymouth, for a very rough challenge, not needed in the wet conditions.

Into the second half and the game opened up a bit more; Bridgwater had the possession still but Plymouth showed they were capable when they had a big chance shortly into the second half.

Poppy Hughes was playing a great game for Bridgwater and she nearly got on the scoresheet; she took on two defenders and then shot just wide of the target.

The away team then received a second yellow card, different player than before but the same type of heavy tackle; it was clear they were frustrated.

In the 84th minute, Kamryn Carter beat a defender and cut the ball back to Griffiths who unleashed a bullet shot from outside the box to get second and double Bridgwater's lead.

Two minutes later and it was all over, from a corner, Amy Goddard headed the ball down to Chloe Gilroy who made sure her shot went in and the score was 3-0.

A solid performance from Bridgwater in some rough conditions sees them climb up the table to fourth place.

Up next for the Ladies is Wednesday night game on October 6 at Fairfax Park, kick off is 7:45pm.
